Getting an accurate view of the business is often a challenge for growing businesses. Data is often fragmented across multiple systems, and spreadsheets are often out of date, error-prone and hard to maintain. But add-on analytics tools are expensive to implement, hard to customize and often lack the real-time intelligence and easy access required to make them pervasive.

NetSuite provides SuiteAnalytics as a standard feature, giving businesses the power of built-in real-time dashboards, reporting and analysis—integrated right into the ERP, CRM or ecommerce application that employees use every day—to drive true operational insights. Business users gain personalized visibility into the latest business performance metrics, whether financial, sales, service or marketing performance. They can identify exceptions, trends and opportunities. When they see an issue, they can instantly drill down to the underlying transaction issue to take action.
